LIVE Symposium

Friday, February 24, 2023
11:00 AM - 2:00 PM Eastern Time

Researchers develop immunotherapies based on cancer mutations that produce neoantigens. These proteins are unique to tumors and facilitate immune system activation. Researchers predict neoantigens using sequencing methodologies and develop modified immune cells including T cells, NK cells, and dendritic cells. 

In this symposium brought to you by The Scientist’s Creative Services Team, researchers will highlight tools and resources used to hunt for neoantigens and discuss how neoantigen T cell receptors (TCRs) are proving effective in destroying tumors.
